Something else to consider: For iosignalfd, we can assume we will
always be called from vcpu process context so we might not really need
official affirmation from the system. For irqfd, we cannot predict who
may be injecting the interrupt (for instance, it might be a
PCI-passthrough hard-irq context). I am not sure if this knowledge
actually helps to simplify the problem space, but I thought I should
mention it.

We can't assume anything. Userspace might hand out that eventfd to anyone.
